Al-Mu’min

Al-Mu'min

Al-Mu’min— The Giver of tranquillity, The Source of faith— on one occasion in the Quran. He is the One who bestows the gifts of peace, security, and faith. Al-Mu’min removes fear, affirms His oneness, and is the Most Faithful!

AI-Mu’min is the One who affirms and believes (emaan) His Oneness and the One who gives emaan. It is also The One who gives Security (aman) and Peace and The One who removes the fear and the One who is Faithful. His promises are always true.

هُوَ اللَّهُ الَّذِي لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ الْمَلِكُ الْقُدُّوسُ السَّلَامُ الْمُؤْمِنُ الْمُهَيْمِنُ الْعَزِيزُ الْجَبَّارُ الْمُتَكَبِّرُ ۚ سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ عَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ – 59:23
He is Allah, other than whom there is no deity, the Sovereign, the Pure, the Perfection, the Bestower of Faith, the Overseer, the Exalted in Might, the Compeller, the Superior. Exalted is Allah above whatever they associate with Him.

We should have emaan (Faith) in Allah [swt] only so that we can receive His aman (peace and security) in our hearts and in this life and the next. We also should be trustworthy when something is given to us as an amaanah (trust) and use it in the right way.

“Al-Mu’min—the Faithful—is the one whom security and safety are ascribed because He conveys the means to attain them and blocks the paths of dangers… The absolutely faithful one is God— may He be praised and exalted—as the one from whose direction alone security and safety may conceivably emanate.”
(Imam al-Ghazali)
